Tom Rush’s distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues.
For the last 52 years, Tom Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the ’60s and the songwriter renaissance of the ’80s and ’90s. James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and Garth Brooks have cited Tom as major influences. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. Subsequently, his Club 47 concerts brought attention to artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin. His music has left its stamp on generations of artists.
As vital and engaging as ever, Tom is still doing what audiences love him for: writing and playing …passionately, tenderly…knitting together the musical traditions and talents of our times. He is celebrating a YouTube hit for his generation, The Remember Song, that’s gone viral with over 7 million views.
Matt Nakoa will be joining Tom. A Berklee College of Music graduate, Matt has recently enjoyed extensive touring, including playing at The White House and throughout India. He has joined Tom Rush for many of his shows.
